Hmmm. If you want to get a jump start on the build for the 180g/220g, you could use the mag and make the plumbing for it, and then just transfer it to your new tank. I am not sure if that would possible since there is a difference in heights between the tanks.

If you would have to end up making new plumbing for the mag to fit the 125g, and then have to make new plumbing for the mag to fit the 180g/220g, I am not sure I would do it.

Just some thoughts that popped into my brain, lol.

Man, I got so behind on this thread. How is the blue symphodium doing? I ordered one from liveaquaria. I can't wait to get it. Any updated pics on your frags?

Yeah, I would have to redo it again if i go to a 180/220, that tank will have dual overflows.....I'm just looking for better ways to do things I guess and that popped into my head as something I could do. lol

All the frags are doing well, the sympodium is still a tiny frag but its looking fine along with most every other coral. Sadly, my torch isn't looking any better and the blue clove polyps I have is infested with aiptasia, I mean really bad, I probably should just remove the coral...just hate giving up on it lol

Well don't give up on it imo. I have yet to give up on zoas and polyps. They hate my existance...that or my tank...I have yet to figure out why they will never open up for me. I want the sympodium to thrive...that and the 34 headed blue trumpet. Working on getting this 55 up and running and keeping the 36 going has been hard work...then my dog dumped her winter coat...ugh.

LOL, good luck! Zooas can be finicky so just keep going, they are bound to work eventually.

I might try some aipastia x on the clove polyp rock, its' just theres more anemone than coral at this point and the coral rock is about 4 inches too.

I lost a couple heads off my huge candycane a few months ago but the rest of it seems to be doing ok.

You can't say those things. Everything is going well in your tank and infact, everything that you have that I am trying to have do well in my tank is doing amazing...

Just picked up my first digitata coral. It's a tiny orange one, in front of the purple stylo. Not the biggest specimen but still a start.

Good luck! I wish I had the kind of results you do. My liveaquaria order will be here tomorrow when I get off work. I have so little space though...I'm going to need to do some rearranging of rock so they do well.

I ran out of room in the tank long ago,LOL, I have 3 frag racks now. They seem to do very well, I'll be doing some rock re-arranging once all these frags are big enough. I was also planning on making my new 60g tank all corals so hopefully the ones on the frag racks will be ready for it.
